MISC:   Rudge Royale (circa 1970) posted by: AlCasa on 4/20/2001 at 12:21:31 PM
Hi,
Pardon my ignorance, but I own a male Rudge Royale (circa 1970). I don't know if this is considered a vintage bike or not, but I would like to get an idea of its value and whether it is worth restoring.

Thanks,
AlCasa

It would be better if it was an older model Rudge. I am not familiar with this model we need to see a photo of it.
Can you describe this? What size wheels, color, accesories< e.t.c.
